Motorcycle Awareness Week

Official Launch Invitation

20th October. York St., Wynyard Square

Information and Calendar

This year’s Motorcycle Awareness Week is going to be the biggest ever. We need all riders and delegates to spread the word and get as many fellow riders to these events as we can. This is our opportunity to show the NSW Government we are here in large numbers, we are to be taken seriously and given due respect as voters, as citizens, and as riders that deserve a fair go.

Importantly this is the time to turn up in numbers and get noticed by one and all in the city.

Thursday 20th October. 12:30 – 2.00pm. York St., Wynyard Square, Sydney CBD.

We kick off with the Launch of Motorcycle Awareness Week (MAW) in the centre of the City of Sydney 12:30 till 2:00pm Wynyard Square, York St Sydney this is right outside the Wynyard RTA Branch so the RTA, the Ministers and the public cannot ignore us.

The day will feature Jonesy of 2WSFM fame as MC, St John’s Ambulance demonstrations of what to do when first on scene at an accident, a fashion parade featuring safety gear from various apparel suppliers and static displays and rider safety information.

We will also have Give Aways of 10 Double Passes to the Opening night of TT3D CLOSER TO THE EDGE 20 OCTOBER, as well as stickers and information sheets.

We will have the Police in attendance, the Ambulance service and Roads Minister Duncan Gay will be attending to address the crowd at 1.15pm.

Opening night of TT3D CLOSER TO THE EDGE - 20 OCTOBER

The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is the ultimate challenge for rider and machine. This visually stunning 3D feature documentary combines drama, humour, tension and tragedy to tell a very moving human story. A story about freedom of choice and the strength of the human spirit.

This is your chance to follow on from the CTP Protest Rally of last year, build on it and make a change for the good for riders across NSW. Let us, as riders, change the opinion of the Government and the Departments and show them that we will not be ignored. This motorcycle Awareness Week make the government aware of our presence, not just the drivers on the road, but the people that administer your hard earned dollars taken through your CTP, the MCIS Levy, the LTCS Levy, the road tax, the state fuel tax, your rego fees. Show them you are there and deserve respect!!
